MPP Bob Delaney, Liberal Member for Mississauga-Streetsville, was at a family fun skate today. The event was free for all and from what I've heard, missed turning into a free-for-all by a dog's whisker.
When a constituent wanted to discuss Ontario's noxious dog ownership ban, whereby dogs are restricted and prohibited based strictly on their physical appearance, not their behaviour, Member Bob distracted her by bongo-tapping on the table, stood up, faked left and deked right into the Men's room to get away.
What a hunk of man!
Delaney was Chair of the Committee in 2005 when all Liberal members obeyed McDad and ignored expert advice and experience, preferring to marginalize dog owners. Fib Committee members voted down every amendment written to improve the legislation. Delaney gaily stood up to be counted on March 1, 2005, helping to pass Ontario's "pit bull" ban into law. He voted against us again in February 2012 when Bill 16 came up for Second Reading.
Bob acts as if we are all fools who think the law is about dangerous "pit bulls" and protecting people from dog bites. Even Big Daddy Dalton's lawyer said that wasn't true in open court in 2007.
Maybe Mrs Delaney's little boy is out of the loop, or hopes that if he just keeps slinging it, eventually some of it will stick, somewhere.
Delaney said to the woman at the rink today that he's glad the "vicious killing machines" are gone and that he will support the ban, forever.
The vicious killing machines in Ontario are Dalton McGuinty's Liberal government, of which MPP Delaney is a proud supporter, and the OSPCA. They certainly aren't domestic dogs, unless you're a rodent or a weasel.
Forever has a way of not being that long, Delaney, when you aren't holding up your end.
Wake up, Ontario voters! Give this charlatan and his ilk the bums' rush at the next election.
Don't let them get away with this nonsense.
Brindlestick covered this as well.
